I really should have posted this earlier, but unfortunately school and life came between me and the blog 😦 But better late than never right?

Brilliant speech. New candidate for 2016 anyone?

Members of Russian punk band, Pussy Riot, found guilty of hooliganism

I don’t think I could call this a human rights blog if I didn’t post something about this terrible injustice. Pussy Riot are an inspiration, to say the very least.  I can’t imagine the kind of courage it must take to stage such an explosive event – one which would inevitably hold the risk of severe consequences.  This group of feminists are role models for every young person out there, because they refuse to sit back and do nothing, they fight for their cause, they stand up to what can only be called an evil dictator for crying out loud, and will go to jail for it.  Not only is the fact that three Pussy Riot members have been sentenced to 2 years in jail an injustice, so is calling their actions hooliganism.  Hooligans wreak havoc, they destruct.  They don’t fight for good, they don’t inspire and they sure as hell don’t risk their lives. Their bravery is commendable, inspirational, and the injustice with which they have been served should stand as a warning to younger generations, yet another indication of the terrible effect power can have, and what we must ward away from. We must take heed, before we simply repeat the mistakes of the past.

Lady Gaga: Feminist Icon…. Apparently

 

‘Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee has two powerful stories to tell — of her own life’s transformation, and of the untapped potential of girls around the world. Can we transform the world by unlocking the greatness of girls?

Leymah Gbowee is a peace activist in Liberia. She led a women’s movement that was pivotal in ending the Second Liberian Civil War in 2003, and now speaks on behalf of women and girls around the world.’

Please watch.  Really worth it.  A reminder of how badly some women are still treated, and something that everyone needs to be aware of.  This women’s story and her words are inspiring.

A truly brave woman. Its examples like these, this level of commitment, bravery and professionalism that people should aspire to, at least in my opinion. This soldier is an inspiration, and a woman whose name should be remembered.
